I beg to differ. I'd much rather deal with Topps than Panini, the company that doesnt answer emails, telephone calls, or return messages. I've never had a problem with any of my Topps redemptions, but I have yet to get ANY of my Panini redemptions back since day 1 with them (and I've been requesting replacements for over a yr). I'll take my chances with Topps over Panini any day.

RE: Topps Redemptions from UFC Products
I will have to take that into consideration at my LCS it seems like everyone who has redemptions from Panini are getting them back within 2-3 months of the product being released. Maybe I am just not hearing the horror stories about non redemptions. My problem with Topps is they should be able to give you a list or some sort of idea what there replacement is going to be. Replacing something from a Premium product (Knockout) with something from Series 4 or Round 2 is unacceptable.

RE: Topps Redemptions from UFC Products
I'm not a fan of the UFC redemption's either as I've been waiting on 6 for several months, but compared to the redemption waits from Panini of 1 - 2 years or even longer, I guess it could be worse. I know both companies get some of them out quick, but of the waits I've heard of from Panini, they are definitely longer.

Another thing I like about Topps is they put good hits in their retail product. I don't live anywhere near a card shop, and the hits in Panini's products are always junk. This isn't just my opinion, but it has been proven several times by myself and people I know. I've pulled a 1/1 Pulver relic, a Machida chrome triple relic, plus several $50 and up cards from other sports with Topps. Upper deck also put descent hits in their retail products. I hate to buy retail, but sometimes I just have to, to keep from waiting on a shipment.

Part of me agrees, but I know Hurtando would probably disagree lol I pulled a redemption for a Hardsigned Full Contact auto of Carwin /99. They ended up replacing it with an un#ed Series 2 auto. However, BV wise, they were the same. Was it anywhere as cool as the Carwin, no, but I can't say I neccessarily got screwed in the deal.

The same thing happened to me for a Finest Ryan Bader Flag-Bearers Autograph Patch, it took over 2 weeks for me to actually receive the card.

it ships standard USPS, the only thing I can think of is they put the DC#s on them in bulk while shipping out mass quantities (pure speculation, IDK) so they can get them in to the computers. It could be all ready to in a bulk lot with 100s-1000s of others.

I had a DC for Clay Guida Knockout Auto (On card) and I received the card about 2 weeks after it posted on the website but the DC number never showed up on the USPS site.
